In the past school year, nearly 1,500 students from Hamilton County Schools or rural areas of nearby counties have participated in CK Now! For many, it was the first time that they’d set foot on a college campus.
In the last six years more than more than 500 student mentors from UTC have volunteered to help fourth and fifth graders at Brown Academy get excited about going to college. Postsecondary Awareness With Success (PAWS) is making a difference.
Sandy Cole, Director of the Center for Community Career Education received $3000 from Hamilton County DoE, and Dr. John McCormack, Station Manager of WUTC, attracted $137,999 from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
